Subject: [gentoo-dev] Perl ebuild updates
Date: Tue, 28 Sep 2004 08:59:23
1 These 2 updates won't affect anyone (they were there to begin with, now
2 they're simply bundled into use flag dependancies)
4 USE="debug" will now enable a debuggable perl (bug 60775) - note this is a
5 debuggable "perl" - not the same as using one of the perl modules for
6 debugging your scripts
8 USE="perlsuid" will now enable the ebuilding of suidperl again. This is at
9 your own caution, and you are warned of such. perlsuid is buggy as all get
10 out and not necessarily the most secure - but while some packages (and
11 people) still rely on its existence, it is built only by specific use flag
12 now. (last practice was to remove it completely before it was merged to your
13 system). Bug 64823.
15 Enjoy,
17 Mike
